SOP's Battle of the Bands Featuring Drag the River with J.J.`s Drivin`

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Fort Collins, CO` s Drag the River  are releasing a quite impressive collection with even more impressive packaging via Suburban Home Records this month entitled Bad at Breaking Up.
 
You can find a full stream of the album over at the band`s profile page at www.Punknews.org
 
The CD features  7 " only tracks, B-sides, their tracks from their split LP with the Dents, and more to make up the 20 song collection CD, Bad at Breaking Up. This collection will help you to own nearly everything Drag the River have ever recorded (that is if you have their other studio albums). The appropriately titled album serves as a reminder that although Jon and Chad plan to release solo albums in 2009, Drag the River will never be done and continue to play select touring engagements when they find the time. (See Tour Dates Below)
 
This collection includes their tracks from : Garage Rock 7`, Can`t Leave These Strays 7`, Under the Influence 7 ", Way With Women 7 ", Beautiful and Damned 7 ", Drag the River/Dents split, and some others.
 
The first 1,000 CDs pressed come with a custom Drag the River guitar pick.
 
Drag the River features Chad Price (ALL),  Jon Snodgrass (Armchair Martian), and w/ Chad Rex, J.J. Nobody, Paul Rucker, Zach Boddicker & Chris Pierce, depending on the day. The band first started in 1996.
